"...giving the opportunity to attend special events helps to establish positive childhood memories and gives hope to help replace some of the not so great memories that may come with living in poverty."
| Thanks to Tix for Tots, kids in Minneapolis and St. Paul can take in their favorite team or musical act. |
Some experiences in childhood are unforgettable. Remember the first time you went to a ballpark and heard the crack of the bat in response to the opening pitch? How about sitting raptly in the audience in the dark, hushed and waiting for the curtain to rise on your first viewing of A Christmas Carol? Some fans recall the roots of a lifelong passion beginning with the squeaking shoes and hustling on the hardwood floors of a college basketball arena.
Whatever your passion, it started somewhere, and being able to experience new things through cultural events opened your mind, made you think, got you in shape or helped you join a team - or maybe just let you escape for a few hours.
Tix for Tots is a new way to help kids in the Minneapolis - St. Paul area who would otherwise not have the chance to experience those events. It is simply a network - a relationship that allows unused seats for sporting events or cultural events be donated to mentoring organizations and distributed, so that kids get a chance to escape, or learn, or develop a passion.
If you have tickets you would like to donate drop them in the mail to Tix for Tots, PO Box 4086, St. Paul, Minnesota 55104, visit their website at www.TixForTots.org, or call them at 612-384-7419.
If you don’t have tickets, you can still help by volunteering and/or spreading the word to family, friends and co-workers about Tix for Tots. Every contact has the potential to get another ticket into the hands of an appreciative child.
